I tend to be a mom who asks for things for my home for Christmas, in fact, one year I put “new vacuum cleaner” on my Christmas wish list from my mom, no kidding. While I know it’s not necessarily the norm, I also know I am not the only mom out there asking for and really hoping she gets practical gifts.

This year, working with one of my favorite department stores, I came up with some practical gift ideas for mom.

Valentine's Day Gifts for the Practical Mom - MommyB.jpg

Handbag or Wallet – Every mom needs a handbag or wallet, but how about getting her a cute designer wallet from I love that at I can purchase great brands like Michael Kors, Lauren Ralph Lauren, Coach, and not break the bank.

Kitchen Appliances – Be careful on this one, some moms want anything other than kitchen or household supplies, but if you have a mom who has expressed interest, carries a great line of appliances. If they like cooking or baking for their family they may enjoy a Calphalon No-Peek Waffle Maker, beautiful counter cannisters, or even appliances that will make entertaining easier. 

Sheet and Bedding Sets – Every bed needs sheets and bedding, but instead of buying the usual, consider purchasing higher thread count, better quality sheets like the Hotel by Biltmore 800 Thread Count Sheets and maybe a few coordinating throw pillows. Practical and pretty!

Watches – Most practical moms are also Type-A moms and try to be on time {when it’s in their power}, so naturally a watch is a great way to tell time and keep moms on schedule. offers so many options when it comes to watches, whether you want something classic, or something fun, or even something with a hint of whimsy and romance like the Betsey Johnson Rose Gold Tone Puffy Heart Watch pictured above. Definitely a great Valentine’s Day gift!

Beauty and Makeup – Choose everyday makeup and beauty products with a boost. If you know they typically wear brown eyeshadow, pick up this beautiful Bobbi Brown Rich Chocolate Eye Palette or treat them to a gift bag of their favorite facial cleanser and a few new products. If the practical mom in your life isn’t big on beauty products or makeup think about buying them something subtle, they may have a change of heart {I’ve done this several times with my own mom.}

Even though these gifts are sensible, they’re definitely not boring. This Valentine’s Day, head to to make your Valentine’s Day gift purchases whether or not you’re shopping for a practical mom, funny dad, awesome kids, or someone else you really love.
